Listen: CHVRCHES – My Enemy (Featuring Matt Berninger)

Chvrches announced details of the upcoming third long player ‘Love Is Dead’ by sharing a second song ‘My Enemy’ featuring The Nationals Matt Berninger. You can listen to My Enemy below.

Chvrches front women Lauren Mayberry praised Berninger’s work in an interview with Beats 1 saying that the band are “huge fans of the National and have been for a long time” and got to know the band whilst working on the 7 Inches For Planned Parenthood project. They stayed in touch with Berninger and reached out after constructing “My Enemy” as a duet.

Mayberry remembers “We were trying to think of who he would ask, and Matt was the first name that came out, like, ‘Do you think he will even do it? I don’t even know,’ So I had to email him, being like, ‘Honestly, no pressure if you don’t want to. Please, I’m so sorry that I even emailed you.’ Then he replied in like half an hour and was like, “Yeah, I like it – send me the stems. I’ll do it tomorrow.’ And it was done. It was the most efficient rock ‘n’ roll transaction.”
